No, Do Not Roast Marshmallows Over Hawaii’s Erupting Volcano, Says USGS

Volcanic gases rise from the Kilauea lava flow that crossed Pohoiki Road near Highway 132, near Pahoa, Hawaii, U.S., May 28, 2018. "Assuming you had a long enough stick, that is", Vermont resident Jay Furr wrote in a message to the USGS volcanoes account.

They said: "We really want to go back and give back a little of that kindness".

"When hot lava buries plants and shrubs, methane gas is produced as a byproduct of burning vegetation", the USGS said.

The USGS took time out of providing updates on volcanic activity to point out that marshmallows roasted over volcanic vents would also taste bad.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists have observed what are called pyrocumulus clouds, which could possibly turn unstable and cause thunderstorms, over the Kilauea fissure system in Leilani Estates.

Lava has engulfed the heads of two wells that tap into steam and gas deep into the Earth at the 38-megawatt Puna Geothermal Venture electrical plant, which used to produce a quarter of the Big Island's electricity.

Hawaii County officials said lava destroyed the electric utility's equipment on the highway, which knocked out power to Vacationland and Kapoho Beach.

Operator Ormat Technologies Inc last week said there was no above-ground damage to the plant but it would have to wait until the situation stabilised to assess the impact of earthquakes and subterranean lava flows on the wells.

The sole reported serious injury from the eruption so far came when a man was hit by flying lava.
